I am the Sea

(written November 2022)

Waves crash and roar.

The sea implores.

I am a powerful force created by nature.

I can be an enemy or a friend.

In a storm, I will drown you in my depths.

I can be calm and at rest.

I keep secrets hidden on the floor of my ocean.

There may be treasure there, or you may find the remains of those who underestimated my strength.

I am the taker of life.

But for those who know how to navigate my waters, I am the maker of men.
